A Lesson In Craftsmanship
The roots of TAG Heuer can be traced back to Edouard Heuer who founded the company in 1860 under the name Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG (English: Heuer Watchmaking inc.) in St-Imier, Switzerland. Through the late 1800’s Edouard Heuer patented many pieces of his watch making including the ‘oscillating pinion’, a movement still used by major watchmakers of mechanical chronographs. In 1985 the Heuer brand was purchased by the TAG Group and the brand became known as TAG Heuer.
TAG Watches in the Past
In 1882 Edouard Heuer patented his first chronograph watch and the innovations just continued from there. In 1911 Heuer received a patent for the “Time of Trip”, the first dashboard chronograph. This item was designed for use in automobiles and air crafts to clock the duration of the trip which was easily operated with a button mounted in the crown the controlled the start, stop and reset functions.
In the mid-1960’s, Heuer was part of a partnership with Breitling and Hamilton that sought to bring the first automatic chronograph to the world and in 1969 they did just that. Heuer’s first automatic chronographs were the Autavia, Carrera, and Monaco. In the early 1970’s they expanded their line of automatic chronographs to include the Daytona, Montreal, Silverstone, Calculator, Monza and Jarama models.
Today, Tag Heuer is the 4th largest luxury watch brand and they are always pushing the boundaries of watchmaking technology. In 2013, TAG Heuer celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Carrera, the racing-inspired Chronograph that forms a key part of the TAG Heuer range today. There have been 10 generations of Carrera since its introduction, and models launched in every decade since 1963. The current models in production today are the Carrera, Grand Carrera, Monaco, Link, Aquaracer, Formula 1 and Professional Sports Watch.
